Stop living like parasites, Kiriella tells govt. MPs

By Saman Indrajith

Time had come for ministers and MPs of the government to step down from their posts and say goodbye to their parasitic lives, Chief Opposition Whip and Kandy District SJB MP Lakshman Kiriella told Parliament yesterday.

“The government ministers and MPs are worse than leeches. You ruined our economy and destroyed this nation but shamelessly cling onto power. Resign with dignity if you have any remaining,” Kiriella said.

He said that the government sent its lawyers to the Court on the previous day to state that it had no funds to hold elections. “The government has funds to increase the cabinet of ministers. You destroyed this country and now go before the courts to say there are no funds for elections. Where have the funds gone? If we check the bank accounts and assets of those who shout for the government today we can find them. I challenge the government rank members to declare your assets if possible. Giving a report on assets to the Speaker to hold onto it without making it public is not asset declaration. I have published my assets on the Transparency International website so that anyone can see. Do the same if you can. I challenge the government ministers to publicise their assets.

“Today there is a bill to bring laws to postpone elections. I warn you against it. Do not delay the elections, because that would lead to a further crisis with a massive explosion of public pressure,” Kiriella said.
